This phone is pretty decent in its class and price. Being an apple user for a long time, i can compare the practical usage speed of this phone to be quite similar with a single core iphone 4 running in ios 7.
Low storage space and bloatware from samsung is a problem but can be fixed by rooting your phone to remove the apps. These bloatware apps consumes large amount of battery and RAM.
Unable to transfer apps to SD Card issue:
The problem is not in the phone or the OS. It is in fact in the app. If you want to transfer these apps, you need to "ROOT" your android phone (may void warranty in some cases). After rooting your phone try using apps like link2sd to transfer files to SD card.
I use Battery Doctor to help me solve some problems. Do not install Facebook and FB Messenger app on this one. You can use Chrome instead since FB apps even not in use consumes large amount of RAM for monitoring notifications causing the phone to become laggy.
Remove unneeded widgets. Close and disable apps by going to settings > app manager > running. Also long press home button and remove recently used app. Only install apps that you really need as some apps hogs RAM and battery. Animated wallpaper is not recommended.

shanth24x7, 18 Jul 2014dude don't even think of comparing it with iphone. this is just a basic phone,but the 5 mp cam... moreThank you for the explanations. I hoped that the camera was good as the older models of iPhone (3gs or 4), but I got it: it's a phone of an other class. That's probably the reason I won't buy it. A dual sim would suit me but I will not compromise too much the camera quality (I have an iPhone 5 right now) and I don't want a display larger than 4''. No way out :)

Anonymous, 18 Jul 2014Is there any specific diff between black color and white color of Samsung galaxy s duos 2?for black as shown in the image the settings and back key are visible but for white colour both these keys are not visible. only when the phone is on with backlight these keys are visible,
that's the only difference
AnonD-284776, 18 Jul 2014i bought this phone 2 days back. i'm having issues with the battery. it lasts for only 3 hours... morekill as many apps as possible and reduce your browsing time. that's the only way to save batter on this phone.
and select your service provider manually.kill services especially like google services, google play services, whatspp, and other services which continuously search for updates and messages.
that's the only way you can save battery on this phone.
I killed these applications and fully discharged the battery and recharged it again,
that's when I saw some improvement in battery life
shanto, 18 Jul 2014Battery backup of Samsung s duos 2 is realy bad?plz reply.while the apps are running in the background you cant expect much backup. after I disabled, google play services and whatspp and few other apps, the battery is surviving. I was told that facebook takes a lot of battery and I didn't really feel like facebook was killing the battery,
battery doctor was helpful to kill some apps.
if you are heavy use continuous phone chatter and non stop social networker then this phone is not for you. you just need to search for plug points all the time to keep charging the phone
